more about Greg and Lemory

Lemery and Greg are full-time dance instructors in the DC area and are an integral part of DC’s thriving social swing dance community. Lemery started off in International 10 Dance while Greg has a background in American Ballroom and Country; they eventually discovered West Coast Swing and each other. As a couple, they’ve been NASDE Tour Champions and currently compete in the Showcase Routine division at West Coast Swing events around the world. Individually, they have won numerous awards for improvised performances in Champion level Jack & Jill (random partner) and Strictly Swing (chosen partner) contests. We are thrilled to have this level of talent in Charlottesville!

Schedule

1:00-1:15 pm: check in, warm up

1:15-2:15 pm: Workshop #1: The Judges’ Eye.

Are you interested in entering your first WCS competition? Or perhaps you are a seasoned competitor in search of tips to stand out and shine on the competition floor. What do judges want to see? How do they make decisions? How is competitive dancing different than social dancing? Lemery and Greg will answer these questions and more as they share their perspective from over a decade of experience competing and judging. No competition experience necessary, however participants must have a solid foundation of WCS timing and basic figures (tucks, pushes, passes and whips).

2:15-2:30 pm: break, check in/warm up

2:30-3:30 pm: Workshop #2: Dancers Choice.

We want to hear from you! CSDS will be sending out an online survey so dancers can vote on the topics they are most interested in. This workshop is for dancers who already have a solid foundation of WCS timing and basic figures (tucks, pushes, passes and whips).

7:00-8:00 pm:  Lesson – West Coast Swing/Tuck Turns & Variations. We recommend attendees have some previous West Coast Swing experience with the basic figures and timing..

8:00-11:00 pm:  Dance
